I am leaving on a trip for 18 days, what should I do?
You can simply enter the dates of travel online.
I am a US citizen who travels often, which plan should I buy?
If you happen to make frequent trips less than 30 days each trip, the Patriot Executive is best suited to your needs. This plan allows you to take as many trips outside your country of citizenship each year as long as each trip is less than 30 consecutive days in duration. This plan is only available to US citizens who are covered by a primary health insurance plan via their employer. We also offer a multi-trip travel medical and evacuation plan from IHI.
How long prior to a trip can I buy the Patriot plan?
You can purchase the same day you travel if you want. There isn’t a window prior to the departure date that customers must be within. You can even purchase your Patriot plan after you have already left. HOWEVER, the coverage will not be effective until you leave your country of citizenship and pay the applicable premium at time of application.
I live in the USA, but I am a citizen of England, can I buy the Patriot Plan for travel to the UK?
NO. The Patriot plan only covers people who are traveling outside their country of citizenship. We do offer the IHI travel insurance plan which may be able to cover you if you are going back to your country of citizenship and you do not reside in that citizenship country as per the plan terms and conditions posted on IHI Travel Insurance.
My parents are visiting my family for a period of time. Can I purchase the IMG Patriot Plan for them
